Description

This picture book companion is a fantastic supplemental resource for the book Bone Soup, by Cambria Evans, the perfect interactive read-aloud for the days or weeks leading up to Halloween. Students will love the engaging and fun activities and you will appreciate the time it saves you looking for high-level activities to teach reading concepts that students often struggle with.

With 19 print-and-go reading exercises to select from, this resource is ideal for personalizing instruction based on your student's needs and academic capabilities. Students will dig into characterization; identify story elements; determine the theme; sequence events from the story; determine the meaning of new vocabulary, practice reading text and illustrations to gain a better understanding, and so much more! The included activities were designed to encourage students to use higher-level thinking skills, require students to provide text evidence to support their thinking, and challenge them to provide their own opinions and/or perspective.

Need ideas for different ways you can implement these activities?
-Focus on different reading skills each day for targeted instruction and have students complete a corresponding printable to check for understanding.
-During centers, students can independently read the story again and complete an activity that reviews a previously taught concept.
-Work with students on a reading concept they struggle with during guided reading or strategy groups.
-Students work with a partner(s) or in literature circles to complete additional reading activities.
